Latest leaked render of Nokia Normandy reveals a Metro UI start screen

Leaked render of the Nokia Normandy reveals its Start Screen


A tweet from master leaker evleaks reveals a new render of the unannounced Nokia Normandy. This is the entry-level phone built by Nokia that purportedly will run a forked version of Android, which means no Google Play Store and no Google branded apps. The image shows off a Metro UI styled start screen that resembles the Start Screen for Windows Phone.

The render also reveals the device will offer dual-SIM capabilities, and follows up on a couple of leaked images that we showed you last week and also over the weekend. One tweet showed a series of images revealing the UI of the device. If you subscribe to the "where there's smoke there's fire" way of thinking, all of these leaks means that we are closing in on a release of the device.

In a way, this could be considered a Trojan Horse for Microsoft. By the time the Redmond based software giant closes on its purchase of Nokia's Devices and Services division, the Normandy might already be launched, turning responsibility for the phone over to Microsoft, too late to quash it if so desired.

One of them surely is that "How the hell did MS allow for something like this?"

It would be nice if it has the Symbian-like UI, but metro UI? Oh well, can't complain too much, the Nokia Android phone is almost here.

"Symbian-like UI", just like Asha phones having the Meego-like UI.

As the owner of 2 symbian phone n97 and 5800 also my dad used to own a satio . Symbian UI is very outdated and very dead

I know, but it would be great if Nokia redesign the Symbian UI. But since Nokia abandoned Symbian, it won't happen.

Both N97, and 5800 are 2009 phones. Since then there were Symbian^3, Symbian Anna, and Symbian Belle with two feature packs. At the end Symbian looked a lot like Android, just smoother (yet still buggy, from time to time). So UI wasn't outdated when Symbian was dropped. That being said. I have no idea, how 'Symbian like UI' would look like on android, since at the end Symbian was looking almost like android...

After symbian S60 , symbian basically became android ripoff that are still laggy . So that's why I don't mention them

LMFAO.. This is just a old prototype.. The project has been scrapped, and this device, nor any other Nokia branded device running Android, will see the light of day in the next few years.. We don't know what the distant future holds, but you guys have a better chance of MS making a Android device, than Nokia making one... Sorry.

Yeah. Surely you know more than the guy with the best track record at exposing leaks in the entire industry. lmfao...sorry

You seem more confident than evleaks, who has proven to be correct time after time.

This is comming from Nokia ... the true Nokia .. and not micro eflop Nokia... ms deserves a middle finger for ruining Nokia..

Wrong. This device is from the same era that has been producing Lumia devices.. What makes you think it was developed before Nokia, and MS started working together, or after MS acquires the devices division❔.. Your comment makes no sense..

Though this has has Metro UI, I believe this is waaaay better than the annoying Windows Phone.

But it looks exactly the same.. You can make a WP start screen look exactly like this.... Crazy, pathetic bias.
